"Our happiness depends on the habit of the mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the habit of happiness, and life will become a continual feast."
-Norman Vincent Peale
I was over at my friend Shelly's blog, "The Malt Shop" which is her meme journal, and I found this cute little one called the "Friday Feast." This my first time playing, but y'all know how much I enjoy doing these, so I might do this one again soon. If you want to play along, just click on the link above and go to the journal that originally created this meme. Thanks Shelly, for the information. :)
Choose one: Moving to another state, having triplets, or never being able to eat chocolate again.
Wow! I don't ever see myself living in another state, but I don't see me being the mother of triplets , so, I guess I would give up chocolate. I like chocolate a lot, but there are other sweets I enjoy just as much. There is still so much of California I haven't experienced with my camera, that I don't think I could just give it up...at least not quite yet. :)
Name a news story that truly shocked you.
It seems like I am continually shocked at the arrogance and mishandling of everything the Bush administration touches. New Orleans is still hurting so badly that is makes my soul hurt. I guess that was the last big shock I felt, the way New Orleans was handled. :(
What was your very first job?
Don't hold this against me. LOL. The very first job, just out of college was as a telemarketer. I wasn't obnoxious however, I could take NO for an answer. LOL.
If you had the chance to read the diary of someone you're really close to, would you? Why or why not?
No, I think everyone has a basic right to privacy. I think that if I really knew the person, then I already know what I need to. We all have secrets...don't we. We all have secret moments of thought and observation that belong to us, until we share willingly. I would never betray a relationship to satisfy a curiosity.
What's something you are looking forward to?
I am already looking forward to the free concert on the beach in Santa Cruz, that starts again . We had such a good time last year, I still smile when I think about it. Alan has decided to take 4 Friday nights off this year so we can go and make a day of it at the Boardwalk, lie on the beach and soak up the sun, go to the concerts then end the day by having dinner at Gilda's, on the Santa Cruz Wharf. :)
